Despite all signs pointing toward the possibility of Taylor Swift being able to file a lawsuit against Kanye West and Kim Kardashian over their recorded phone call that was leaked Sunday night (July 17) on the latter's Snapchat, it appears the couple will not face any charges.

TMZ reportedly obtained the entire phone call recording and reports that Swift was aware the call was not private. During the phone call, the conversation from Kanye's end was on speaker mode, and record producer Rick Rubin also reportedly joined in the conversation several times. As the report continues, members of Kanye's camera crew filming him on the call were also reportedly talking in the background.

While Taylor's legal team reportedly threatened Ye for recording the call, which they claim was made without her consent, as TMZ points out, that would only be the case if the call was "confidential communication." But as made clear above, confidential communication does not include conversations that "may be overheard."
